Emotions have continued to run high at the Gbaja Street, Surulere, Lagos, residence of late talented music producer and singer, Babatunde Okungbowa a.k.a ‘OJB Jezreel’ following his demise two days ago.
The respected music producer, who passed away in the early hours of Tuesday, had battled with a kidney disease for some time before he eventually had a transplant in India in 2013.
However, family members and friends of OJB are not happy with the colleagues of the deceased in the entertainment industry.

Vanguard investigation revealed that many of OJB’s close friends and neighbours are bitter, as they accuse the legendary producer’s colleagues of abandoning him to his fate in the last days of his life.
According to one of the sympathisers at OJB’s residence who spoke to Vanguard on the condition of anonymity, the entertainment industry is full of fake friends and fake love. The source alleged that the lion share of the funds raised to foot the bill of OJB’s kidney transplant in India about three years ago, didn’t come from the entertainment industry.
